SLPP Strengthens Awareness Times Report

Many of our readers wondered as to why we ran the report culled from the opposition SLPPs Unity Newspaper in our Thursday May 30th 2013 edition. The SLPP article was authored by the SLPP newspaper Editor Kef Dukulay and was supposed to be a rebuttal denying the facts in our article on recent events in Bonthe. In our opinion, the so-called rebuttal, actually merely strengthened and confirmed our reportage on the matter.
 
Our original report and the so-called SLPP rebuttal are reproduced again by popular demand today. If the Chief was in such good terms with the Police, why did his endorsed women ceremony see thousands of women head straight to the Bonthe Police station to invoke their curse on innocent Police officers over cannibalism?

Most importantly though is that it is not Dr. Sylvia Blyden who is saying Bonthe folks are man-eaters. The Bonthe Paramount Chief in Jong Chiefdom is on record over the local Bonthe radio openly accusing that some of his Bonthe people were cannibals whom need to die using sorcery imported from Moyamba. Quite openly in the presence of the government delegation during the meeting which he himself chaired, the Paramount Chief again accused that some of his people were involved in cannibalism.

It is all on tape to the hearing of hundreds and hundreds of people. If there is indeed cannibalism in Bonthe, it is the Bonthe people accusing each other of being cannibals. No-one else is doing so. All Dr. Sylvia Blyden did was to go to Bonthe, on the instructions of His Excellency the President, to help calm down the tensions which had risen over allegations of cannibalism by Bonthe people against Bonthe people! So, is it now a crime to make peace for Bonthe people? We do not think so.
